Memorial Day

For Memorial Day, we went to Salmon and camped with a big group of our friends. There were about 40 people there, and it was super fun. Lots of kids to play with, and lots of 4 wheelers dirt bikes and razors to drive. It was so nice to be with everyone and away from everyone else :) Unfortunately I only got a few photos all weekend.

Today was Hunter's Kindergarten Graduation. The three classes all put on a musical program, followed by the diploma ceremony. It was a super cute program, and I am so proud of my little Hunty.

Meet the Author

Hunter's class had a Meet the Author this week. Each of the kids had written a book about themselves, illustrated it, and used pictures of themselves. Almost all of the parents came, and it was really cute. We all listened to our own child's story first, then rotated around the room to listen to the other kids as well. I got to listen to about a dozen of them, and they all did so good!

Band Concert

Tristan's band had their end of the year concert tonight. All of the bands played their songs, and a big combined song at the end. It was really nice, and they all did a good job. I don't think Tristan will continue to play in the coming years, but I'm really glad he did and I really enjoyed watching him learn to read music and progressing as a player.

On an unrelated note, Tristan also turned in his science project last week. He did his project on finding the cleanest and more efficient wood to burn. He did a good job on his project, and he got an A on it.

Scout O Rama

Yesterday Tristan and Jasen attended a Scout O Rama. Tristan earned his Electricity merit badge, and Jasen earned his Mathematics belt loop. They both had a lot of fun going to all the booths and doing all the activities. They each climbed the rock wall, and checked out the SWAT truck and Marine Humvee. Jasen also saw the Life Flight Helicopter, climbed a rope and tried on a fireman's suit while he waited for Tristan to finish his class.

Utah Trip

This last weekend, we went down to visit some of Cahl's cousins in Utah. We haven't seen them since Christmas, and there is a new baby in the family, so we had been looking forward to this trip for a few months. Cahl's uncle and another cousin also came up from Vegas, and it was so nice to see everyone. The kids were so happy to see their cousins and play.

almost all of the cousins
Brinley especially loved the little pool in the backyard. Every time I turned around, she was right back in it- sometimes fully clothed and sometimes naked!  

Tristan was happy to ride the motorbike at the track right down the road.
Cahl also made friends with Petey- the adorable 6 month old Chihuahua puppy.  He and Mason got along fine, and I wish we had stolen him!
It was a great visit, and I hope we get to see everyone again very soon.

Cahl's Work Trip

The beginning of May, Cahl went on a work trip to Oregon to help doing some surveying. He was gone for 5 days to the Medford/ Ashland area surveying in the Rogue River Basin, and he really enjoyed the trip.
